Holiday Rental House
You are on holidays with your children or with some friends. One of you just wants to have a moment for him/herself to read a book, while the others want to chat or play a game. What a luxury it is to have two nicely decorated living rooms! Two big amphores hidden in the floor draw your attention in the first living room. The one and a half meter big pots were used to store water or was it wine? Sunlight is coming through the French doors of the second living room. From the corner sofa you see the woodfire and you can overlook the huge terrace and garden. Walking down two steps, you enter a spacious kitchen. Now hurry up to the terrace to chill on the day bed and watch the sun set! After a twenty minute drive you will leave the cozy town of Málaga behind.

Walking down two steps, you enter a spacious kitchen. Now hurry up to the terrace to chill on the day bed and watch the sun set! After a twenty minute drive you will leave the cozy town of Málaga behind. The highway changes into a windy uphill road. At first you have splendid views on the Mediterranean sea, after a while the hills and mountain take over the view. The road changes for the last two kilometers in a very good sand road. Being at an altitude of five hundred meters you can overlook the Andalucian inland which looks like a patchwork of white villages, olive and almond trees and in a distance the mountain of El Torcal and El Chorro. Getting out of the car at Finca Las Nuevas you will hear the birds singing or just a moment of absolute silence. The serene quietness where you are looking for, leaving a busy life behind you. The old ‘era’ next to the driveway remembers the day the area was covered in wheats. The round place was used to dry the grain. Nowadays the mountains around the house are covered with almond and olive trees. The old finca of Las Nuevas is more than hundred years old with typical Andalucian details, like thick walls and small windows. It houses three holiday units, each in Spanish style and with its own private terrace or balcony. The huge common terrace is overlooking the mountains of Sierra de las Nieves and the garden. Walking down the garden, your eye catches the lovely pool with sunbeds. The view, with the sunset which colours the sky in various colors of orange is breathtaking. At night the sky is lighted by thousands of twinkling stars. Finca Las Nuevas – Relax, Refresh, Enjoy! Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: VTAR/MA/01619

Interaction with guestsWe love to get to know you, but above all we want you to feel at home having the holiday you deserved! Together with our children we live in the old finca, we are nearby in case you want to know something. We hope you can enjoy the many things the area has to offer. We have three small dogs and a snobby cat who are very friendly, they do not come into the rented houses.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Prachtig, zeer ruim huis in een oase van rust en wonderschone natuur
Geweldige plek in de heuvels dichtbij Malaga. Zowel strand als leuke stadjes zijn dichtbij. Voor een lekkere lange wandeling kun je de auto laten staan. Een verfrissende duik in het zwembad is compleet met adembenemende vergezichten. Ons appartement Casa Carmen is heel ruim en gezellig ingericht. Heerlijke bedden. Je voelt je er meteen thuis en alles wat je nodig hebt is aanwezig. Eigenaresse Pascalle gaf ons fijne tips voor uitjes en restaurants. El Torcal is met z'n ruige schoonheid heel erg mooi om te zien. We hebben heerlijk Indiaas gegeten in Coïn. Malaga is heel gezellig tijdens de kerstdagen met o.a. een prachtige lichtshow in de calle Marques de Larios. De oude burcht en het Amfitheater moet je gezien hebben. Finca las Nuevas is een perfecte uitvalsbasis voor een heerlijke vakantie. En als je rust wilt, blijf je lekker luieren in en om het huisje.
